Jackie Sparrow

Today is one of those days that so easily go pear-shaped.

All of the neighborhood dogs were howling at the full moon last night, and both Eva and I are tired.
It is still very hot, and despite some clouds hanging around, it still has not rained. Tempers are high all over town.

To top it, Eva has a LOT of homework.

I forget all mum rules and ask 'What do you want to do first?', instead of cheerily announcing that it is best to start
with math.

Of course she catches me out and counters that she doesn't want to do any of it, what she wants to do is find
something to wear for Halloween. I surprise us both by agreeing to that.

The mood instantly brightens, she gets together my yoga pants, my shirt and some fabric scraps, and transforms
herself into Jackie Sparrow.

And all of a sudden she doesn't look like a 10-year old. She looks like Jack Sparrow's sister.
She looks like a pirate.

I take some pictures of her, then she washes the beard off, becomes my daughter once again, and is now doing her

With her permission, I give you captain Jackie Sparrow:




Lots of love,

      Dir auch alles Liebe

  5. Wow, she really IS Jackie Sparrow....!!

  6. Oh my goodness. She bares an uncanny resemblance to Johnny Depp. She is stunning, I just would have never considered that she looked like Johnny Depp until now...and now that I see her like this, it's one of those aha moments.

  7. What a lovely Jackie Sparrow! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  8. I know you're a great photographer--you pics are always amazing, but that girl is a natural model! She even pulled upoff the captain's pout perfectly. Glad you opted to go with the costume. Homework is highly over-rated.

  9. hahaha she looks amazing! Good thing to do to cheer up before homework!

  10. And Jack Sparrow was never cuter!! :-)

  11. You are such a nice mommy! Your tactic (whether planned or not) worked brilliantly! Eva looks fab! Love it!
